A two-day conference in Vienna, 16-17 December 2019
Co-operative Compliance: Towards Improved Tax Certainty
The conference will bring together tax officials, businesses, international and regional organizations and academics from OECD and non-OECD countries. The aim of this conference is to provide a platform to share the experience of co-operative compliance programmes to date, discuss insights to their design and examine the new multilateral phase, ICAP.
The event is the seventh in a broader project - “Co-operative Compliance: Breaking the Barriers” - a WU Global Tax Policy initiative that began in 2015. From its inception, the project has enabled high-level discussion and debate on how to enhance tax compliance. The Co-operative Compliance joint project with ICC and CATA examines the legal, administrative and political constraints in getting more countries to adopt a relationship between tax administrations and MNEs, which is based on trust, openness and constructive dialogue. It examines why this is the case and how some countries have managed to overcome these constraints and what can be learned from their experience. Particular attention is being paid to non-OECD countries and how they could benefit from a co-operative compliance approach, including how to deal with BEPS-related issues.
At the London meeting in March 2019 it was agreed to create five working groups: Identifying criteria to access CC (1), developing a model legislation (2), creating a governance framework for tax control and risk management (3), developing a methodology to measure cost and benefits (4) and setting out a road map for engaging civil society (5). It was also agreed to extend the African pilot studies to Asia and Latin America.
